Hawaii Island Hopping – Abbot family (Aug 2016)

Jules is always happy to help, no matter how big or small the trip and gives great advice. The whole trip was wonderful (we have been to Hawaii several times and love it!). Both Maui and Oahu are spectacular, yet very different in character. Lots to see and do. Kayaking, waterfalls, great scenery, sunrise at the Haleakala volcano.

Here are some of our highlights: Kayaking/snorkeling excursion – you can hire snorkeling equipment from places like Boss Frogs or Snorkel Bobs in Kihei • Stand up paddle boarding (lessons are available) • Introductory dives – try Scuba Mike • Drive to Hana – go all the way around to see the very different scenery on the back side. Look for black sand beach and red sand beach, and lots of waterfalls and pools • Drive around north-west to Ka’anapali (very touristy by good beaches) and LahainaSunset or sunrise on HaleakalaCycle trips by Maui Cyclery • See the turtles at Hookipa beach at sunset • Eat at Mama’s Fish House on the north shore • You can get cruises to Molokai, Molokini and LanaiHelicopter flights over north east Maui and Molokai are supposed to be fabulous.
